This was funny I thought as I am in the midst of working on a fun project with a person where we felt that doing some pre-production planning would help a lot in terms of deciding exactly what kind of angles are needed for a film. While there are options such as using expensive software specifically for this purpose, he mentioned that he could use this free video game where you can create objects and record video as if you are a camera and use that as a reference.
As silly as that sounded, it actually works for what we needed. Many times when you think about it, a lot of our tools and resources can be used for more than what it is labelled for. In fact, sometimes there are items that are literally the same thing but are labelled differently for marketing purposes. I’ve seen things as silly as regular batteries simply saying “for use with” certain products and businesses sell it for a premium price as a result.
These are the types of things that usually a child would have an easier time with when it comes to using things for other purposes than intended. Sometimes we all need to think like that.
